  • 2 tomatillos
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 lime juiced, 1 1/2-2 Tablespoons
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin


  • Place tomatillos directly over open flame of gas stove or broil until charred, 3-5 minutes, turning to char entire outside.
  • Cut into chunks and place into the bottom of a blender with remaining ingredients for dressing. Blend until smooth. Taste, adjust seasonings and serve over southwest salad.
  • For my salad, I used baby kale, butter lettuce, black beans, corn, cheese stick cut into slices, crushed tortilla chips and tomatoes.
